    It's my favorite book from 5th Grade.  I have it and the sequels and I read them to my son when he was quite young.  

    What surprised me was having him come home from school one day telling me all about how a Tesseract was real - a genuine mathematical concept they had discussed in class... I was floored, never knew that before (figured it was a theory right out of Star Trek's warp drive theory or something, but I never got as far in math as he did).  

    Can't figure out why it would be banned.  Aunt Beast maybe?  Intelligent beings on other planets?  IT as a Communist or Facist, maybe?  

    Ah well, who knows?  Maybe "Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men and the weakness of God is stronger than men...."  they just didn't get it, did they??

    "Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential." - Barack Obama
